+    Notice
+This Agreement is a Free Software license agreement that is the result
+of discussions between its authors in order to ensure compliance with
+the two main principles guiding its drafting:
+    * firstly, compliance with the principles governing the distribution
+      of Free Software: access to source code, broad rights granted to
+      users,
+    * secondly, the election of a governing law, French law, with which
+      it is conformant, both as regards the law of torts and
+      intellectual property law, and the protection that it offers to
+      both authors and holders of the economic rights over software.
+The authors of the CeCILL-B (for Ce[a] C[nrs] I[nria] L[ogiciel] L[ibre])

+    Preamble
+This Agreement is an open source software license intended to give users
+significant freedom to modify and redistribute the software licensed
+The exercising of this freedom is conditional upon a strong obligation
+of giving credits for everybody that distributes a software
+incorporating a software ruled by the current license so as all
+contributions to be properly identified and acknowledged.
+In consideration of access to the source code and the rights to copy,
+modify and redistribute granted by the license, users are provided only
+with a limited warranty and the software's author, the holder of the
+economic rights, and the successive licensors only have limited liability.
+In this respect, the risks associated with loading, using, modifying
+and/or developing or reproducing the software by the user are brought to
+the user's attention, given its Free Software status, which may make it
+complicated to use, with the result that its use is reserved for
+developers and experienced professionals having in-depth computer
+knowledge. Users are therefore encouraged to load and test the
+suitability of the software as regards their requirements in conditions
+enabling the security of their systems and/or data to be ensured and,
+more generally, to use and operate it in the same conditions of
+security. This Agreement may be freely reproduced and published,
+provided it is not altered, and that no provisions are either added or
+removed herefrom.
+This Agreement may apply to any or all software for which the holder of
+the economic rights decides to submit the use thereof to its provisions.
